    You can read more about openSUSE basic concepts here:
    Concepts - openSUSE

    Typically open source drivers come with openSUSE Linux. To learn about the compatibility of your laptop with openSUSE, take a look here:
    HCL/Laptops/HP - openSUSE

    There is guidance for installing openSUSE Linux here:
    NEWBIES - Suse-11.0 Pre-installation PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums

    Good luck, and welcome to our forum.

    We can't make a valid comment on the Ubuntu HCL based on whether a device works in openSUSE

    Do read the links posted by oldcpu, it will save you a lot of misunderstandings. Linux is different from windows - much easier to use and mantain, IMO, but different.

    Most drivers are included in the system, with the notable exception of proprietary video drivers for nvidia and ATI, and a few wireless network cards.

    Checking out the HCL is highly recommended.
